REGULAR SESSION BEGINNING TUESDAY, JANUARY 8, 2013
The House assembled at 10:00 a.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by Rev. Charles E. Seastrunk, Jr., as follows:
Our thought for today is from Psalm 46:15: "God is in the midst of the city, it shall not be moved."
Let us pray. Thank You, dear Lord, for being our refuge and strength. You are our savior in a time of trouble. Bestow Your blessings and give peace to your people in times of stress, disappointment, and sadness. Grant Your grace on each of our Representatives and staff as they continue to serve You and Your people. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff and all who labor to make things better. Protect our defenders of freedom, at home and abroad, as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen.
